Better Business Bureau: Hall of Fame Torch Award

Better Business Bureau Honors Melaleuca

The Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming division of the Better Business Bureau recently presented Melaleuca President and CEO Frank L. VanderSloot with its 2005 “Hall of Fame” award. This prestigious award honored Melaleuca for its example of ethics and integrity in dealings with customers, employees, and the community.

As a new start-up company in 1985, Melaleuca generated significant amounts of public attention from individuals who wanted to know if Melaleuca was a financially sound company, with quality products, reputable managers, and a history of ethical business practices.

Building just such a reputation was a vital concern to Frank and his management team.

Although the Better Business Bureau cannot endorse any business, it recognizes Melaleuca’s 20-year reputation of ethics and integrity as a reputable company. As Melaleuca’s presence continues to grow in communities across North America and around the world, an ever-broadening spectrum of people ask these same questions all over again. Now, because of recognition such as the BBB Hall of Fame award, it is easier, though no less important, to demonstrate to consumers everywhere that our mission of enhancing lives is accomplished in accordance to the highest standards of ethical business.

The Better Business Bureau’s mission is to promote and foster the highest ethical relationship between businesses and the public through voluntary self-regulation, consumer and business education, and service excellence.

The Better Business Bureau was founded in 1912 and is today supported by more than 300,000 local business members nationwide. It is dedicated to fostering fair and honest relationships between businesses and consumers, instilling consumer confidence and contributing to an ethical business environment.
